Why Bond length of O-O is greater in H2O2 than O2F2?

Electronegativity of F is much more than hydrogen and also hybridization of oxygen atoms in of H2O2 and O2F2 both have (sp3) same . According bent’s rule those hybrid orbitals containing flourine atom have less % s-characterand more p-character while other orbitals have more % s-character and less % s-character hence O-O bond length in O2F2 is shorter thane H2O2.
